Twiztid tickets - Twiztid Tour

Twiztid Schedule

This dark hip-hop band, Twiztid, has a steady following in the scene and has now for quite some years. After having taken time to hide in the shadows, while perfecting their disturbingly demented brand, Twiztid has now released a new album, A New Nightmare, and are on tour to promote it. There are a number of venues and cities to catch a glimpse of this duo, as they make their rounds across the North America. Twiztid will be stopping in places like Rockpile West in Etobicoke, Ontario; Wild Bills Saloon in Banff, Alberta; El Corazon in Seattle, Washington; Las Vegas Country Saloon in Las Vegas, Nevada; Scout Bar Houston in Houston, Texas; Vinyl Music Hall in Pensacola, Florida; Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Ziggys By the Sea Wilmington in Wilmington, North Carolina. While this is not a comprehensive list, it gives you and idea of just how many shows they are playing during this tour. Take a look at the schedule on StubHub to see which location is nearest you to watch Twiztid play live to promote A New Nightmare. That is, stop dreaming of seeing them live and go experience the nightmare first hand.


About Twiztid

Twiztid is an American hip-hop duo from Detroit, Michigan. Jamie Spaniolo and Paul Methric formed the band in 1997. Instead of using their legal names, the two go by the stage names Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child. The twosome was once members of the band, House of Krazees. The band considers itself "hardcore" hip-hop that become popular in the 90s, a mix of hard rock and hip-hop. They are also recognized as horrocore, which is why they take on stage names, costuming and album titles that harken back to b-rated horror films. The band has released nine studio albums. In addition, it has nine EPs and has put together seven compilations, in addition to one mixed tape. In 1997, the band signed with Psychopathic Records and stayed with the label until 2012.


Twiztid Breakthrough

It should be no surprise that in the early days of Twiztid, Spaniolo and Methric sent a tape to Insane Clown Posse. As it turns out, Joseph Bruce of Insane Clown Posse was genuinely interested in the sound. In fact, Insane Clown Posse helped to get Twiztid a record deal with Island Records. The album Mostasteless was pulled and rereleased with Island Records with an updated track. There were two new songs added, "Murder Murder Murder" and "She Ain't Afraid." While there was criticism with their likening to Insane Clown Posse and the comic book horror genre of music that Twiztid aligns itself, the album Mostasteless did peak at number 8 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and number 149 on the Billboard 200. At the beginning of the millennium, the band released Freek Show. Again, it was acknowledged by critics for appealing to a niche market but made it to number 51 on the Billboard 200. The EP Mirror Mirror was praised before the band released its third studio album, The Green Book. Again, it charted like Twiztid's former albums in spite of its nontraditional music style and stage antics. Twiztid continued to release albums over the years and play shows. The sixth studio album is Independents Day and included a number of featured guests. Some of the guests included Dog Pound, Tech N9ne and The Dayton Family. This album peaked at number four on the charts. In recent years, Twiztid announced working on its own label at the Days of Dead convention.


Twiztid Trivia

When Twiztid was touring with Insane Clown Posse, the bands got into an altercation at a Waffle House with a customer. It led to Twiztid being charged with battery. This is one reason why critics may be reluctant to give two thumbs up, as the Insane Clown Posse and their juggalos have received criticism by the media. There is one thing that is clear; Twiztid has done an excellent job at topping charts and growing its fan base in spite of previous altercations.


Twiztid Live Show Experience

Seeing Twiztid on stage live is one of the most theatrical experiences in the hip-hop scene. The band is incredibly outrageous and more often than not inventive in how they engage the audience and share their relatively dark and sinister hip-hop music. The band is unapologetic in what it does on its records and is equally so when it comes to its often times outlandish stage performances with an array of at times intentionally tasteless costumes. Regardless of the purposeful distasteful antics, audiences love to see this band live for the entertainment value. To give more insight as to what one has in store at a live show, Rock Revolt Magazine got good insight into the band during an interview. According to the twosome, "We are the wicked sh*t! We are the wickedness. We are the darkest of the dark. We are the a$$es of all light. We are the hungest of the hung." While the two were talking in their stage characters, they also explained another way in which to perceive why they do the work that they do, "Because the music industry needs us. They need innovation. They need different. They need the next 25 years of music. That is us."
